You add up all of those taxes add them to the daily cost of running your business and come up with prices for your services based on your daily operating cost plus all of the taxes you pay. If you get axed more, you have to raise your prices for your goods and services. It just common sense.
so yes you do pay taxes, but those taxes are passed onto the consumer when the use your goods and services
Yes my point is that corporations do in fact pay taxes, your right. If our taxes get raised it makes it harder to stay in business. What do we do with all of those taxes you ask? It does affect our overhead and our rates go up and we become less competitive with foreign companies. We cant always pass it along so it make us less profitable. Our customers are other businesses as well. If they can get things made cheaper elseware they will. Or maybe we would be forced to layoff employees. I havent let that happen in twelve years and hope I never do. One thing that people should know is that most businesses are like mine. Just mom and pop shops with people trying to get ahead. We are the ones who take risks and put our homes on the line to start a business. We employ 12 people with meaningful jobs and it's a nice clean and lean modern facility. If we dont stay in business 12 people will be out of work. Taxing the snot out of businsess is not going help create jobs or stimulate the economy.
I think what the final plan is going to be will be assistance to you in the form of the tax breaks thst are now going to your big corporate competitors who can undersell you based on their tax loopholes by operating offshore & not hiring American employees. Better to provide YOU with a the tax incentives to stay right here & hire Americans & buy your supplies from Americans. The idea of providing tax benefits that hurt this country just makes no sense, except for a very few stockholders.
